Stirrups at the OB/GYN - anyone else hate 'em?
The design of examining table stirrups is another of those things that should have been reinvented by modern medical science. I can't stand them!
I know part of my problem is that my legs don't bend normally. Although they look normal (more or less :-)), my knees don't bend at the usual angle. As a result, it's almost impossible for me to put my heels in stirrups and maintain the proper position. The other problem is the shape of the stirrups themselves. How uncomfortable can they get??
So glad I didn't need to deal with these things when I gave birth to my babies.
